Virtual Networking Breaks and Private Discussion Groups – Case Study

Event Company X wanted to enhance their online partnering event and create a more informal way for participants to network during programme breaks. We were able to create Virtual Networking Breaks using our Sessions feature, limited to under 10 people per session, ensuring conversations were intimate and manageable. Access to the Virtual Breaks was opened at specific times during each event day, creating a ‘buzz’ of activity with users able to see who was already in each session before selecting which one they wanted to jump into. At the end of each networking break they could then navigate to the next activity – live sessions or structured one-to-one meetings – within the same platform, even though some of the sessions were hosted on a separate application.

Event Company Y also wanted to provide multi-participant discussion groups, but as completely private, closed discussion groups. They did this through our Private Sessions feature, which ensures only designated participants can view and join their own discussion groups via a link on their personal online meeting schedule. The sessions could also be recorded for distribution to attendees who were unable to attend the live discussion.

With nothing to download, and simple onboarding via any up-to-date internet browser, the Virtual Sessions feature has been a hit with customers and attendees, who appreciate the ability to access event content and activities via the same platform.
